Gigi Hadid Admits She's 'Terrified' of Facials: 'I'm Not Much of a Skincare Guru'

In a new WSJ. Magazine interview, the supermodel shared beauty secrets, insight on her self-care routine and a little bit about mom life with her 2-year-old daughter, Khai

Gigi Hadid may be one of the most famous supermodel faces of the moment, but she's not following a super strict skincare routine.

In a new interview with WSJ. Magazine for its My Monday Morning series, the supermodel revealed that there's one thing she'll barely do in the beauty space — get a facial because she's "terrified" of it.

"I'm not much of a skincare guru," the Guest in Residence founder told the outlet, adding that she's only ever experienced the skincare treatment once in her life: "Before the last Met Ball," she confessed.

To prep her skin before the annual fashion gala — held on the first Monday in May at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City — she looked to a close friend who also works with her little sister and fellow model, Bella Hadid.

"I really trust them. But I just like to keep it simple," she noted.

Yet, her 2022 Gala costume was anything but. Hadid hit the carpet in a ruby red Atelier Versace look complete with a floor-sweeping bubble cape and corset latex bodysuit, worn in honor of the In America: An Anthology of Fashion exhibition.

What Hadid is building up these days is her wellness rituals, which she revealed includes visits to the chiropractor to "get recalibrated."

"Doing the job that I do, it can be very physical," she said, adding, "Oh, I guess a New Year's resolution [I have] is I'll try to treat myself to a massage a little more."

And a form of exercise for the multi-hyphenate? "Running after my 2-year-old," she admitted, referring to her daughter Khai, whom she shares with ex Zayn Malik.

"We walk a lot. We do yoga together. With lifting her and running around all day and going to the park, I get moving," she shared.

Despite her minimalist approach to skincare, Hadid is certainly one to go all out fashion-wise at the Met Gala.

The 27-year-old is a seven-time attendee at the star-studded affair. She made her debut in 2015 wearing a red DVF gown with sequin floral appliqués and a thigh-high slit, in celebration of the institute's China: Through a Looking Glass exhibit.

Since then, Hadid has really tapped into the fête's different dress codes with over-the-top costumes, including a head-to-toe metallic Michael Kors look for 2019's "Camp: Notes on Fashion" and an Old Hollywood ensemble in a strapless gown by Prada in 2021.
